Building up our mental wellbeing is important because we all want to feel good; both about about ourselves and about the world around us. We all want to be able to get the most from our lives. However there is evidence that good mental wellbeing is not only about feeling good, it is also important for our physical health, and for helping us achieve the goals we set for ourselves.

5 steps to mental wellbeing

정신적 웰빙은 무엇인가?

Sarah Stewart-Brown, professor of public health at the University of Warwick, and a wellbeing expert, says that when we talk about mental wellbeing, we mean more than just happiness.

It’s useful to start with the idea that overall wellbeing involves both the mind and the body. And we know that physical and mental wellbeing are closely related.

당연하지, feeling happy is a part of mental wellbeing. But it is far from the whole. There is a deeper kind of wellbeing, which is about living in a way that is good for you and good for others around you.

Feelings of contentment, enjoyment, confidence and engagement with the world are all a part of mental well-being. Self-esteem and self-confidence are, too.

So is a feeling that you can do the things you want to do. And so are good relationships, 당신과 당신의 주위에 사람들에게 기쁨을 가져다하는.

당연하지, 좋은 정신적 웰빙은 당신이 어려운 찾을 감정이나 상황을 경험하지 않는다는 것을 의미하지 않는다. But it does mean that you feel you have the resilience to cope when times are tougher than usual.”

Mental wellbeing can take many different forms, 하지만 유용한 설명입니다 좋은 느낌과 잘 ​​작동.

Wellbeing and society

지난 50 년 동안, 전 세계에 걸쳐 많은 사회는 부자가되었습니다. 그럼에도 불구하고, evidence from population surveys – in which people were asked to rate their own happiness or mental wellbeing – shows that mental wellbeing has not improved.

So we’ve got more possessions, more money to spend, and are able to take more expensive holidays, but we are not any happier! This suggests that many of the things we often think will improve our mental wellbeing do not, on their own, lead to a lasting improvement in the way we feel about ourselves and our lives.

The message is clear: It’s time to rethink wellbeing.

Evidence and wellbeing

Over the last 20 years new evidence has emerged about what really causes lasting improvements to mental wellbeing.

“Some of this evidence comes from observational studies, in which scientists look at the behaviour and wellbeing of certain sections of the population,” says Professor Stewart-Brown. “Other evidence comes from trials in which scientists take a group of people and ask them to change their behaviour or participate in a treatment or other intervention – such as an exercise programme – and then watch what happens to their wellbeing.”

To obtain evidence on wellbeing, scientists have to find ways to measure it. Often, scientists measure wellbeing using a series of questions that ask people how they feel about themselves, their lives, and the world around them.

Wellbeing in your life

Many factors influence our wellbeing. Evidence shows that the actions we take and the way we think have the biggest impact on wellbeing.

It can help to think about “being well” as something you do, rather than something you 아르. The more you put in, the more you are likely to get out.

“The first thing you can do for your own wellbeing is become curious about it,” says Professor Stewart-Brown.

“Start to think about what you’ve done in the past to promote mental wellbeing, and whether it worked. Then think about new things that you can try. 기억, no one can give wellbeing to you. It’s you who has to take action.”

Five steps to mental wellbeing

Evidence suggests there are five steps we can all take to improve our mental wellbeing. If you approach these steps with an open mind, and genuinely give them a try, you can judge the results yourself.

Take notice

Be more aware of the present moment, including your feelings and thoughts, your body and the world around you. Some people call this awareness “mindfulness,” and it can positively change the way you feel about life, and how you approach challenges. Learn more in Awareness for mental wellbeing.
